Our Team

The BY YOUR SIDE – Autism Therapy Services (BYS) team consists of a multidisciplinary group of speech-language pathologists, occupational therapists, board certified behavior analysts, and support staff with expertise in the four hallmark characteristics of autism; communication, social interactions, maladaptive behaviors, and sensory.

The BYS team works in three different environments: In-Home, In-Center, and In-School.
